Denver Broncos at Indianapolis Colts and Week 8 Pick ‘Em
In the aftermath of the Kansas City Chiefs’ rout of the Denver Broncos on Thursday Night Football, a potential fire sale in Denver has been kickstarted with the trading of Emmanuel Sanders to the 49ers. The Broncos’ offense just got a lot younger with the departure of Sanders, leaving what may be the youngest group of wide receivers in the league. However, the offense has been incapable of any production the past two weeks, and Joe Flacco seems to regress as the weeks pass by. Add this in with a Darius Leonard-led Colts defense, and a stout offensive line that may give the Broncos’ front seven major fits, and this has all the makings to be a very long day for the Broncos.

The Denver Broncos have struggled the past few years in early road games, and with this offense looking more and more like a JV squad, I don’t think those struggles evaporate against the surprisingly 4-2 Indianapolis Colts.

Denver is coming off of one the the most embarrassing home displays I have ever seen in my tenure as a fan. The Kansas City Chiefs rolled in and stomped the Broncos in a lopsided 30-6 game. It was a game the team and the fans needed to be won.
Now the optimistic outlook for Denver this season is hoping to be 7-9 by the end of it That being said, it’s time to rebuild. The Colts have been really solid this year and are looking to keep their ground in the playoff race. From their point of view, this is an easy win for the Colts. And to be fair, it should be.Denver has not shown enough through the first part of the season to convince me they can take down a team like Indy, at home or on the road.
